Bobbi is the children's teacher which gives adults their own time during retreat sessions. They have their own room nearby. Older kids have the option to stay with their parent, while we ask that younger children go with Miss Bobbi. She will provide a positive and fun experience with snacks, crafts, Bible theme, fun activities, and takes the kids to the game room. The kids can win prizes and will enjoy hanging out with other kids. Bobbi has been a favorite Sunday School teacher at church for over 30 years. The kids will have a great time. She has an adult son and has grandchildren.
